Speaker: Vicki Hoffman, Penn State University
A networking and collaboration event, we look forward to sharing Penn State's energy related capabilities, our vision for becoming the higher education leader in energy, and hearing from you about needs and opportunities to work together toward the energy future.
An interdisciplinary forum for scientists and extension people working in the field in plant pathology, plant physiology, microbiology, and crop breeding to increase our knowledge and improve our understanding of overwintering of crops, forages and grasses and solve the problems associated with losses due to freezing and heavy snow cover.
This Symposium seeks to provide a forum for scientists to present new research on environmental studies, agricultural research, processes of soil erosion by wind and water, conservation policies, and innovative practices to preserve and protect the soil, water, and air resources while at the same time providing for a sustainable agriculture.
The Congress will consist of many plenary lectures and concurrent sessions on a variety of topics, offering weed scientists from all over the world the opportunity to meet and present their research.
This workshop is about modular and open-source suite widely used in the investigation of the properties of man-made and natural materials, taking explicitly into account the electronic structure. Developers of the package, led by the Professors Stefano Baroni and Paolo Giannozzi will present the theory behind the codes and train the participants on how to use them for different applications. Participants would be able to present a poster of their own work during the workshop.
The field day promises to be an informative event featuring a wide range of crop production topics. You can see research plots in the field, learn from Penn State and Ag industry professionals and visit with industry sponsors. The Farming for Success field day is planned and organized by local members of the Penn State Extension Field and Forage Crop Team, with support from: The Pennsylvania No-till Alliance; The Pennsylvania Corn Growers Association; The Pennsylvania Soybean Board; and, Numerous local Agricultural Businesses
